UAW Year 9 - Anderson Shelters -
Year 9 History students brought in a range of materials to make their very own Anderson Shelters. They were very creative in the materials that they used such as green supermarket scourers to represent the turf over the top of the shelter. They had had to research before-hand what they looked like so that their design was appropriate.
The activity was designed to bring life on the home front during the Second World War to life as well as using creative skills to gain a better understanding of and enthusiasm for History.
Mr Kirkup: “Students enjoyed being creative and using a range of skills from other subject areas. The examples showed very enthusiastic preparation!”
Amy Mackintosh: “We were able to use a range of skills to make representations of what Anderson Shelters were like.”
